Spotify’s African Heat Playlist Gets A New Look
Spotify’s African Heat Playlist is receiving a new look and a playlist makeover.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
This revamps ushers in a new age in which African Heat is more than just a playlist but a portal into the magnificent world of African music and culture.
The playlist is a fan favorite and a one-stop shop for finding the continent’s best new tunes.
Every Spotify playlist begins with a spark. A memory, a location, and a musical bridge. The fans helped create this amazing playlist. The driving force behind every artist’s rise to fame.
The developed trends helped reveal that African Heat listeners are more of a community. They were open to exploring the continent’s sounds, regardless of their location; USA, Nigeria, Kenya, or the United Kingdom.
Creating the playlist requires a delicate touch and an eye for the unexpected. It’s a delicate balancing act between discovery and popularity. A forecast of what the listeners could be interested in and what they already know and enjoy. It’s a balancing act of utilizing facts to back up a seasoned music editor’s judgment.
The Playlist includes bangers that are currently receiving massive airplay, such as ‘Yahyuppiyah’ by Uncle Waffles and ‘People’ by Libianca, featuring Ayra Starr and Omah Lay, and are a big part of social media song and dance challenges by a global audience, demonstrating the ability of African music and musicians to leapfrog language barriers.
The African Heat playlist is jam-packed with genres including Afrobeats, Amapiano, Afropop, some Hip Hop, and Bongo Flava, all of which are on fire. There seems to be some fresh heat on the horizon as well.
To say that the African Heat playlist is well-liked by viewers would be an understatement. The playlist has over a million followers and has had over 500,000 streams. It’s a hit with everyone. But the issue is, who are the playlist’s true fans?
It’s no wonder that feel-good, uptempo music is among the most streamed songs. Most popular tracks involve top musicians such as Burna Boy and Ayra Starr.
African Heat is the ideal platform for transporting its global and local audiences to every corner of Africa. You’d be prudent to crank up the volume with editors who have their finger on the pulse of what’re hot and simmering new hits.
